Slow Cooker Pizza Chicken by Jen

1 1/2 lb boneless skinless chicken thighs
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 small onion, sliced
2 medium bell peppers, cut into strips
2 cups tomato pasta sauce (from 26 oz jar)
1 package (16 oz) rotini pasta
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese (4 oz)

1. Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper. In 3 1/2- to 4-quart slow cooker, place chicken. Top with onion and bell peppers. Add pasta sauce.

2. Cover; cook on Low heat setting 4 to 6 hours.

3. Cook and drain pasta as directed on package. Place pasta on platter. Top with chicken and sauce. Sprinkle with cheese.

Freezer Friends:
Option 1: If you decide to thaw, cook on low heat setting 4-6 hours. Our crock pot cooks very fast, so it only took 3 hours for our meal.

Option 2: Cook from frozen. Remove plastic bag from frozen meal. Place meal in crock pot. Cook on low 6-10 hours. Serve over pasta. Sprinkle with cheese.


  1. This had a great flavor - and I liked being able to cook from frozen. The only problem we ran into was with the peppers. They get pretty done (mushy) after cooking all day in the crockpot. I would recommend freezing these separately and adding to the crockpot during the last hour or two of cooking.

    The leftovers were very tasty. Thanks for a great meal!

  2. This was a delicious meal, however, we didn't get to enjoy the cheese on it, because we forgot. Thanks for a grood meal. The kids loved it.

  3. The kids didn't want to touch it with all the peppers, but seemed to like it fine after picking the peppers out. I served it on a night when I wasn't home, so I didn't get to try it, but it must have been good, because there wasn't any left.

  4. Micah nd I enjoyed this meal. We shared the leftovers that week. This was a meal that the kids hardly touched and went to bed a bit hungry...again..
    Once again, this meal didn't go over well with them. We thought it was good. Thanks!
